Hello All.

 I got some new things. I've been having continuing health issues, so I dressed up today just to try and lighten my own spirits.

A job-lot of piccys from events over her last couple of months. No new outfits I'm afraid, just tweaks of existing ones, but at least and indication they some level of normality if returning as events resume.

Yours,
Miranda.

Stunning as ever! And a really nice variety - I'm quite jealous that you have been able to attend events - we are still in lockdown... I LOVE the colour of the cobalt blue gown, beautiful!

Thank you! Yes, I do like primary colours for my outfits :). Hopefully we will be able to hold onto these regained freedoms over winter with the help of the booster vaccine programme that began this week. Let's hope other areas of the globe such as yours can enjoy the same soon.

Yours,
Miranda.

They are lovely indeed my dear Miranda.
We've been at a small steampunk fair at Heskin Hall today and it wasn't until we got home that we realised we were so busy chatting we forgot about photographs  :D :D :D

Many thanks :-). You certainly had the weather for your event this weekend and I can well understand how you didn't have time for piccys, as we all do have a lot to catch up with each other - but it's wonderful to be be able to do so!

Yours,
Miranda.

My child has been brought up in a household of cosplay and dance - lots of costuming. In their final secondary school year, they have made themselves at least 2 shirts, two waistcoats (one made from their old school clothes for the final day), a jacket with tails, a jacket with an embroidered collar, and breeches. This is what they see as their future professional career. They don't need help from their parents - we might end up needing help from them!

I've only recently started getting in to steampunk seriously and am working on my first look.



This is just the basics and need to now work on the details. I'm thinking some kind of utility belt with various potions and poisons showing first.

An excellent start! Love the colour, love the hat and waistcoat. (Does it have a pocket for a fob watch?)

Thanks. I didn'tknow whatlook I wanted to go for to start with but then Ihear The Cog is Dead doing Bad Guy and thought 'That's what I want to do'

I thought dark blue would work better then black. The waistcoat has a couple of pockets but don't seem ideal for a fob watch, which is a shame as Ijhave an engraved one from the kids as a Christmas present.

Ooh yes, the waistcoat is very nice and the cane adds the requisite touch of class.

It's been a while since I popped any outing piccys up, so here's a job lot from the last few months - Black Country Living Museum 'Red by night', 'Steampunks in Space' at Leicester Space Centre, our local Steampunk group's Christmas party, Barber Institute of Fine Arts and Ironbridge.

Yours,
Miranda.

LOL, in that last one it looks like your dress is wider than the red boiler (or whatever it is).
All look marvelous.

Thank you  :) As to the last picture, others have commented on the 'old boiler' without being too specific of just what they are referring to ;)

Love the mask/pith helmet combo.  For me it's been the Covid mask with the Pickelhaube-fur hat, for the last two years during winter. I do get a lot of compliments on it. Alas my hat has really worn out now because the leather was artificial. I've bought a couple of similar hats, but they're not looking as good as the original. I'm pondering remaking the same hat with real leather by myself or by hiring a tailor I know to do it (wouldn't mind paying a lot more if the hat could last a lifetime, though).

Dressed for the occasion.
